“Dear President Bollinger,
I am a part of the Columbia community and I call on you to publicly recommend fossil fuel divestment to the Board of Trustees immediately. Even the two University Professors you named signed on to a statement calling for divestment from fossil fuel companies that do not meet certain criteria – criteria that no fossil fuel company today meets. The students sitting in are taking a brave, moral stance for our future, threatened by climate catastrophe that these companies fuel. Columbia must lead, not follow, and you have the power to make divestment happen. Recommend divestment now.
